Michael Jordan‘s Converse sneakers that he wore during the 1984 Olympic gold-medal game against Spain recently sold at auction for a record $190,373 USD — the highest-selling price for game-used sneakers in history.

The legendary kicks are considered the last pair Michael Jordan wore in a game as an amateur, as well as the last time MJ donned Converse on an official game court. The historic sneakers feature leather and nylon uppers, as well as Jordan’s autograph and his original orthotic insole inserts.

“The record-shattering price proves that Michael Jordan has no equal in the marketplace for game-used basketball memorabilia,” commented vice president of SCP Auctions Dan Imler. This pair of Converse has topped the basketball legend’s “Flu Game” Air Jordan 12s, which held the previous auction record of $104,765 USD in 2013.
